    Knowing limitations of the product is important. Some people expect miracles. Thanks for the input

    That's very interesting. It just so happens I am an ordained minister through Universal Life Church, (anybody can be one) http://www.themonastery.org/ordination?gclid=CJ706qaMgLcCFYNx4AodL20ALg. I married a very old friend of mine when his church refused to perform the ceremony because he is Purto Rican and she was white, (and this was in like 2003). They have since have decided to accept them back into their parish, Better to have em and there $$ then send them else where. I am also an Honorary Beer Church Minister, http://www.beerchurch.com/, I guess everybody needs something to belive in.. I belive I need another beer.

    the brinseas are nice pig but why not just make a small Ohio brooder ? 20 bucks to build and the principle is the same but the Ohio or aka hover is cheap ,easy and effective as the chicks self regulate

    my 2x2 Ohio brooder only uses two 15 watt incandescents that's 30 watts temps steady 95* inside no adjustment in height no nada i use the pine bedding on top for insulation but if you are in a cold area you might need bigger bulbs

    one 25 watt bulb will do it but by using two will give you a back up if one fails
